Transliteration table

When Artefact is in the transliteration mode, each sequence of Russian words in a query must be enclosed in a pair of characters #, and written with Latin letters (see the table below).

The last # may be omitted. However, the omission of the closing # in the middle of a query may lead to confusion. For example, the query #prezident or pravitel'stvo is interpreted as #prezident# and #or# and #pravitel'stvo#,because or gets transliterated and is not recognized as an operator. Hence, the above query should be entered as either #prezident ili pravitel'stvo or #prezident# or #pravitel'stvo.

Note that the letter (er) is encoded with two adjacent apostrophes (''), rather than with a double quotation mark ("), because the double quotation marks are used in the query language for other purposes.
